AUDEL GUIDE TO THE 2011 NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE

The National Electrical Code (NEC) is updated and published every three years, with changes ranging from revisions to deletions to some existing requirements.  To keep electricians up to speed on the latest standards, as well as prepare them for passing required certification exams, John Wiley & Sons has revised both AUDEL GUIDE TO THE 2011 NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE (Available Now; $45.00) and AUDEL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR ELECTRICIAN’S EXAMINATIONS, 15TH EDITION (Available Now; $24.99), trusted sources for critical NEC information.  The NEC is now the de facto standard set of electrical requirements, and these new releases make it easy for professionals to get the latest information on new regulations in a format that’s easy to use.

            Electricians know that the voluminous NEC affects many disciplines, but they need to know how it influences their work as installers.  That’s what the AUDEL GUIDE TO THE 2011 NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE delivers.  Organized by the type of wiring involved, this indispensable guide extracts and explains only the information that applies to installation, and in plain English. It's a practical reference that highlights what's new, what's changed, and what electricians must do to comply.  Coverage includes:

  • What's changed in the 2011 codes for ease in understanding and answering questions on the job
  • New coverage of hybrid electric vehicles and small wind turbine power generators
  • Grounding definitions and requirements for feeder panels
  • How to identify the types of conduit and tubing needed for various installations
  • Guidelines for lighting fixtures
  • Locating code sections relating to HVAC, home appliances, swimming pools, and communication systems
  • How to bring old installations up to code 

            The second title, AUDEL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS FOR ELECTRICIAN’S EXAMINATIONS, 15TH EDITION is a comprehensive review guide that gives electricians both the knowledge and confidence they need to pass the state and local licensing exams. It's packed with sample questions to help professionals focus their efforts, review material on all aspects of the 2011 National Electrical Code (NEC), the lowdown on business competency requirements, and tips for studying and test-taking that will help test-takers conquer anxiety ahead.  Readers will:

  • Learn the definitions, specifications, and regulations of the 2011 NEC
  • Acquire test-taking skills with examples of questions and answers that are similar to the ones on the license tests
  • Brush up on taxes, unemployment, workers compensation, OSHA, lien laws, and other aspects of the business competency exam
  • Boost their confidence with studying and test-taking tips

            Both “Audel” titles have been reliable and trusted resources for decades, and these new editions deliver all of the vital content electricians need to make the grade and advance their careers.
